My group will be doing Are You Being Served in May and we are having a lot of trouble finding a suitable wig for Mrs Slocombe. We want a really good wig and not a pink 'Frenchie' or a blue 'Dame Edna'. Does anyone know where we might be able to get such a wig either for purchase or hire. We see the wig as being almost a character on its own! We are happy to buy a white/grey wig and spray it but we'd need to be able to set it in her style. I've seen a few wigs online and one in a wig store but they all seem to be rather short and not enough volume to be able to recreate her look.
All advice gratefully received.

Why not do a deal with a local hair tweezy shop, to supply the wig, for a fee advert in the programme.

I realise it's a general saying!
But a wee small problem I see is how you will drag along the 'Jack' Staff mast? Isn't it the 'Union" flag! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/rolleyes.gif) http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Naval_jacks
